Imitation of The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck

The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck by Beatrix Potter

For this imitation I decided to start with creating template. I cannot remember the last time that I did any creative writing or writing with dialog. Even though creating the template took quite a bit of time, I think that it will be worth it because it provides me with the bones of the story. Now it’s time to fill in the meat.

To contrast with Beatrix Potter’s story I will have the Jemima be a person and have the supporting characters a combination of bits of her imagination and her family.

My imitation will tell the story of a young child who desperately wants a puppy andher attempt to get one.

Cast of Characters

Jemima – Young child, Poppy

Rebeccah – Toy doll, Francis

Farmer’s Wife – Mum
